Astronomer and observatory director James Barclay, beside one of the Meade LX200 14" GPS F10 Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes that can magnify 100's of times more than the human eye. View exquisite detail of the Moon's surface, coloured 'belts' of Jupiter, the Rings of Saturn, various stars, galaxies, nebulae and star clusters.
The kitchen steps at each telescope is for the observer to lean onto, rather than the telescope.
Each telescope can be raised or lowered at a push of a button, to suit the height of the observer. No bending or sore necks!
You also get a non-technical commentary of what the telescope is pointing + a guided tour of the night skies with a registered green laser pointer.
It will be night to remember! .
